Lungaversary Day and sick :-(

Today marks 9 years 4 months of my life with the lungs!!! Unfortunately I'm celebrating on the couch, surrounded by snotty tissues, a head that wants to explode and a runny nose that is not compatible with a nasal O2 cannula. I have a cold :-( Woke up sick yesterday morning. Really annoying and making feel even more short of breath. Hoping this goes away quickly and doesn't turn into something worse.

Last week was filled with nephew-love and raising some more organ donation awareness. Fawn and I gave a talk at Netcare Unitas hospital to a bunch of Emergency Medical Services people. It went really well and we had a great evening. Apart from that it was just the usual... got to see Adriaan quite a bit, it literally feels like he grows every day! Love the little man so much! Unfortunately now that I'm sick I will have to stay away for a bit :-(

Thought of some more bucket-list things I need to do once I can breathe properly again one day... (So far I've only mentioned going to New York on my blog) I didn't suddenly think of them all this week, but I think it's a good idea to write them down so that I can find it again in future!
  • See more of Europe (I've only been to Sweden)
  • Go to Storms River Mouth again and do all the trails (We were there in Sept last year but I couldn't even make it to the suspension bridge).
  • Represent SA in squash at another World Transplant Games... 2019 in Newcastle would be great!
  • Run more
  • Do spinning more regularly... I only did a spinning class about 10 times, but I really enjoyed it and would love to do it more regularly. Not a cycling fan per se, but the intensity combined with the music was great!

I shall be thinking of more items for this list! Send me some ideas or recommendations!

P.S. Shaylene and I were also in the Saturday Star last week, if you want to read the article click here.

Praying your cold is short-lived, Alice, and that it doesn't progress to something worse. Your nephew is so adorable!
